Short description: 
INCREASED FUNDING FOR SCH ACT                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Increased Funding for Public Schools Act.   Beginning      
   with  fiscal  year  2000, and in each fiscal year thereafter, provides      
   that the amount appropriated by  the  General  Assembly  from  general      
   funds for public school educational programs for the fiscal year shall      
   be  at  least  equal  to the sum of (1) 51% of total new general funds      
   available for spending from certain sources during that  fiscal  year,      
   plus  (2)  the total amount appropriated from general funds for public      
   school  educational  programs  during  the  preceding   fiscal   year.      
   Requires  the Governor, beginning with fiscal year 2001, to include in      
   his or her annual budget an allocation for public  school  educational      
   programs  that  conforms  to  the  provisions  of  the Act.  Effective      
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Administrative Office of Illinois Courts)             
          There would be no increase in the number of judges needed.           
          BALANCED BUDGET NOTE (Bureau of Budget)                              
          Since this bill is not a supplemental appropriation bill,            
          the Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply.                         
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Education)                               
          The fiscal impact of this bill is similar to that of the Fund        
          Education First Act.
